Zack Weinberg is creating Readings in Computer Security

What’s this?

Back in 2015, I was a graduate student in computer security and reading a whole lot of papers and then promptly forgetting what they’d said, so I started writing mini-reviews and posting them on my website. Lots of people appreciated the reviews but then I had to seriously buckle down on my actual PhD thesis so I had to stop doing them.
Now I’m a postdoc and I’d like to go back to writing those reviews again but I can’t quite justify carving out the time from paid work. So I’m setting up this Patreon mostly to gauge how much public interest there’d be.
At the moment I’m not sure I am actually going to do this, so there are no subscription tiers. You can express interest by either just "following" me, or by pledging some amount of money if you want to put a dollar value on it. I’ve set this to pay-per-creation so nobody will get charged right now, but if I do start posting again I will switch it to per-month.

Who is this guy?

Hello, my name is Zachary Weinberg. I go by “Zack,” except on paper. Pleased to meet you.
I’m about forty years old, and I grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. Currently I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I work with ICLab and CyLab to study Internet censorship. Before that I worked for the Mozilla Corporation; before that, I studied how people understand language at UC San Diego; and back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, I was a core GCC developer.
For more about me, please see my website. I don’t use social media very much but you can find links to my various other accounts there if you’re curious.
